We finally got our winter snow…shortly before spring begins and right after a February that felt more like May. We weren’t supposed to get any, but lo and behold, there was white stuff on the ground when I woke up. We were all really excited! Sam measured and thinks we had a little over four inches.
After searching forever for gloves and boots, we finally made it out. I duct taped some bungee cords to a laundry basket and we used that and an old blue tarp to drag the kids around. They had a blast. Little Man tried sledding behind the hill down our house in a laundry basket, and made it about four feet. He tried the wagon, too, but it didn’t go anywhere. Maybe we’ll get a little sled to have on hand to use once every three years when we get a bit of snow.
Since the weatherman was calling for it to be a cold, cloudy day, I figured we’d have snow to play in tomorrow, too. But, nope. The sun came out in the afternoon and all we were left with was some leftover snowmen (that’s my dad’s snowmen below, but using it to give you an idea of how quickly things changed) and mud.
Now that we got our snow fix, I suppose I’ll join the “Bring on spring!” crowd. We’re going to plant some flowers and stuff (the technical term), and I’m ready to get to it. Plus, there’s soccer. Little Man’s soccer jamboree was yesterday — Sam is coaching, and I helped out since one of the assistant coaches wasn’t there. We lost, unfortunately, but the kids all played really hard. Hopefully it’ll be a productive soccer season!
That’s my weekend — how was yours?
